Be Creative

The good thing about landscapes is that they are not going anywhere. You can take your time setting up your camera and make sure the composition is just right.


You can also experiment with different effects. Set your EOS to shutter-priority (Tv) mode, choose a very slow shutter speed – a second, or longer, if possible. With the camera on a sturdy tripod, anything static in the scene will be sharp, but moving subjects, such as long grass or leaves blowing in the wind, will be blurred.

A different perspective on the same view
An interesting set of images can be created by returning to the same place throughout a year to capture a landscape through the seasons. Try to find a place for your camera that is easy to locate time after time – a particular stone on a low wall, for example, or a point mid-way between two distinctive trees.
